Launched in 2012, QING was designed by Ron Holland to merge the proven benefits of the commercial industry, with the amenities and luxury feel of yachting. QING was designed with a single main engine that allows for exceptional efficiency and lower maintenance.
Powered by her single Caterpillar 3512B, QING has a range of 5,000 nautical miles, at 10 knots she only consumes 33 gph/125 lph, and 5,800 nm economical range. A separate Cat C7 Engine powers a 360-degree thrust schottle jet-drive for docking maneuvers and redundancy as secondary propulsion for a get home power. Coupled with a hydraulic stern thruster she is an exceptionally maneuverable vessel. QING ensures unparalleled comfort at anchor and in rough seas, with her at anchor zero speed stabilizers.

In order to capitalize on efficiency, stability, and to achieve as lower GC as possible, the superstructure is completed in fiberglass with carbon fiber strengthening in high-stress areas.

Designer Sylvia Bolton created a stunning modern and contemporary interior, adorned with horizontal Macassar ebony paneling and rich walnut floors. The flooring throughout Qing is “floating”, to minimize any transient sound or vibrations from machinery. This soundproofing and vibration control was custom designed specifically for this model by Van Cappellen.
